750ml. Pours the color of every other Gueuze in the world with a short lasting white head. Thin layer of bubbles remains throughout the glass. Aroma is cidery, funky but mild, urinal, brett, some horse. As the beer warms the aroma becomes better and funkier thankfully. Taste is pretty sour, quite thin bodied, acidic, dry, with a tart cidery aftertaste. Very drinkable, thirst quenching even. I don’t think this is one of the more complex examples of the style I’ve had but it’s certainly very good.

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - JAN 5, 2002
A cloudy yellow, lots of fiz. Some head collapse but persistent. I love the aroma, I dont know what it is but makes my mouth water. Sour, fruity aromas that are immense. Acidic, tart,oak stands out. Sour green apple flavors come out as well. Drying at first but becomes very juicy. Smooth, sharp and one hell of a body. Great stuff.

Brewed in Belgium....... Courtesy of AFI96, thanks Waylo. Pours a lite orange color with a super thin white head. Aroma of orange peels, citrus, straw and sour notes. The taste is of earth, straw, citrus and a fabulous sour kick. The mouthfeel is very thin in body and finishes with a nice dry sourness. I am also very satisfied with this gueuze from Cantillon.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2012 Bottling date of March 17, 2010. Got this 750ml via trade. After months of contemplating when to drink it...I finally cracked it on a random Tuesday when I was out of work early and its hot as hell out. Capped and corked bottle, absolutely love the label and look of this bottle. I cracked the cap and found some vile smelling yellow liquid sitting above the cork. Decided to give it a taste....straight acid. The spider webbed cork pulled out with a very faint pop. First glass was poured into a palm tulip at near cellar temperature. The rest of the bottle went into the fridge for some temperature variation. Pairing this with some fresh caprese salad drenched in balsamic vinegar. A - Deep golden color, lots of bubbling, and a really impressive white, foamy head that died down slowly. Lacing was pretty dismal. S - The first thing I thought of was sparkling apple cider...and then came the wall of funk. Lots of bretty goodness, hay, sour lemons, and oak. T - Near perfect. The mouth feel is just so dry, lively and crisp. It just compliments the amazing flavors profile. Sour apples and lemon, barnyard funk, hay, grass, and light oak flavors. O - This just surpassed Drie Fonteinen oude as my favorite gueze. This is such a well crafted beer that was worth the wait.

Beautiful dark golden coloured beer with a lasting white head. As soon as you open the bottle a almost perfect aroma comes to greet you. Really good gueuze, the sourness in not overwhelming, perfectly balanced. (Corked bottle 37,5cl, bottle date 30 december 2009)
